      small raise is fine on the flop, but if he has there worse Ax hand, you would likely still stack him, but he can also have there AQ/AK against that you´re way behind.
      So in general I´d rather just call on the flop and call him down or if he bets really small on the turn- less than half pot, then raise there for value.
      Board isn´t that drawy that you should raise on the flop, since ti is very hard him to b/c with worse hands

      Hello wlcKeD,

      Preflop: Actually even calling here is sometimes close unless the opponent has been really opening wide. For him being OOP and on SB he rather has somewhat stronger hand. Therefore sometimes I'd even prefer folding it here.
      Postflop: Basically I do like the raise more than a Call. When he really has the Ax or even Kx or a draw he is likely going to pay us. Although I guess you can even raise it a bit bigger like $2,50-3.

      Best regards.
